SHAME FOR LIFE!!! The pencil necked manager was clearly a Shamdangler... We had a whole birthday party planned there and they would not let the Birthday Boy in because his I.D. Expired on his birthday...he had paperwork from the DMV that clearly showed an extension and those gaylords would not let him enter, even though he does not drink. Our whole party left and none of us will ever bring our business to this ridiculous excuse for a good time...lame retards-clearly the management graduated DUMB CAMP!!!

My son was there today for a party. He had 2000 tickets, he put them in the machine and hit done. The machine claimed he had 0 tickets. The manager looked at him, told him that he must have swiped the wrong card and walked away. This is how Dave & Busters handles their customers. My son worked hard to earn 2000 tickets and they did nothing to help him retrieve his credit. I want people to know how they rate in customer service.

Pros: Great Food, Too much fun, family friendly

.

Service was not to memorable, I had the cheese burger and the price was close to nine bucks. Not worth the money. As far as playing games it is a kids playground. I would not recommend eating there, you can get better food from one of the taco stands along the way. The food is over priced and the service takes and awfully long time to get your order. For drinks it is almost as much as going to a club and paying for watered down alcohol.

What a night. Dave and Buster's is a great place to play and have some fun. You can buzz for service while you play, so you don't have to get up to get a drink. Whew. Someone really thought this through. If you get tired out and hungry the restaurant has a selection that deserves trying out.

Dave and Busters is a great place for kids and parents. The food is great not like fast food you get at most game centers. The atmosphere is more relaxing for adults. The prize you get at the end of the night are pretty good too.

Don't bother eating here. The service was a horrible experience. The server didn't know any of the rules associated with the specials, and he was constantly trying to upsell drinks for a bigger tip, even after we told him that we just wanted food several times...annoying!!! The food was poor quality (we ordered the ribs) very fatty and the sauce was bland. Great place to get drunk and play video games, but eat before you get there.

Let's face it; you're here to drink and play videogames. On these two points, D&B is fun and entertaining. A $10 cover is a bit of a putoff just to get your foot in the door. Nostalgic quarter-pumpers will be dissapointed to know that none of the videogames use coins, but rather a rechargable card with which you can put any amount of money on it and swipe to play whatever games are available. Their food didn't impress, even for bar food, and was on the expensive side. They have some booths but I would much rather come earlier to avoid the cover and to just play the games. They have some cute trinkets that you can win.

Do not come here if you have a large group! They require that you have 75% of your group there before they are able to sit there. I went there for a B-day and they gave us a hard time because not all of our group was there, plus the waiter seemed to be annoyed because we were a large group.

This is by far the best restaurant we have ever been to. This is the ONLY place that is a guaranteed part of ANY trip to a place that has one. The food is outstanding. The arcade is unbelievable. The price is more than competitive. We do not have one these within 6 hours of us but we manage to go 2-3 times a year.

This is a fun place to go with buddies to hang out. They have good drinks, pool tables, and video games. Its hard not to find anything to do. Their prizes are also good and worth playing games for. Overall a really fun place to go, lots of variety.

The food is so good, at D & B, we find ourselves going there for the food first, the entertainment second. This place is not for those watching their budgets. The games us a point system, and you purchase a certain amount of points on a reusable power card. You then swipe the card at each game you play. Some tickets give tickets, which you turn in to credit your power card. The tickets can be redeemed for prizes, ranging from plastic pinky rings to lcd monitors. There are also several areas that can be rented out for private parties. We have held several parties in the pool table area, and the food and service has always been excellent.

PROS: Good food, plenty of parking
CONS:

This place is an awesome environment for friends and a chill hang out place. There are arcade games, bar, and food. Everything is somewhat pricey but the atmosphere makes up for it. On Sundays there is this deal for food + games at a discounted price, which makes it totally worth it. Customer service is top notch.

If you're tired of the bar scene and want to have fun, go to D&B! You can have fun with nostalgic games like Street Fighter II or have a basketball shootout for tickets with your friends! Plus, you can save the tickets on your Power Card and save up for major prizes!

This place is great for adults and kids alike. Too bad you can't go in by yourself unless you are a) 21 or older, or b) with someone 21 or older. The game you want to play there are always open, you dont have to wait in line. The food is good and affordable. The games themselves are pretty pricey. Theres a tap there for beer lovers and pool tables. The place becomes only 21+ at night

This place is incredible. You can go with your family, you can go with a date, go with friends, go with the kids, go with a group, go when you're hungry, go when you want some tastey "adult" drinks, go when you want to play, go to watch the big game.....it's for everyone and everything. You can purchase a card to use so you don't have to worry about carrying around or loosing money. The food is great, the games are fun. There is plenty of parking! Get their early on the weekends cause there is a cover after 9pm. It is super fun for everyone. Highly recommended.

Dave and Busters is an adult version of Chuckie Cheese or the R rated version of FAmily Fun Center. Although it has an arcade, it does not have a very child friendly atmosphere, especially for children under 12. This is especially because of the presence of a bar (and the people that sit at it). It is also extremely expensive.

This is a good place to go to with your family because there is a little something for everyone. Beer and Sports for the adults and video games and recereation for the children. It seems in my opinion that teens get left out of this mix as they are getting out of the arcade game phase yet can't enter the bar. Also, with the advent of nickel city I have trouble accepting these 50 to 75 cents a play establishments anymore. Still the building is huge and there are plenty of fun things to do for a night.

PROS: Big, Fun for everyone
CONS: Not for teens

Dave and Busters has something that will appeal to almost anyone. They have a great arcade with all the latest games. They also have a bar as well as tables. If you have a group of people or party, they have executive rooms that are private. It is like a casino but with video games instead of gambling.

Dave and Buster's combines the best of both worlds for young adults.. Good food, Good drinks, and Good Games. D&B is a great spot for a fun party espcially when you're over 21. The prices are decent enough, and they make up for any overpricing with the great atmosphere and fun games.

If you need a place to go that is reasonably priced with great Las Vegas styled entertainment, than this is the place for you. They have the most advanced video games for adults and kids.
